Penisola del Sinis - Isola di Mal di Ventre

Reviewed By anniekmcc - Tortola

This area is a bit of the beaten track and offers quite an eclectic mix of archaeology at Tharros, walking trails, Beaches and some small cafes. Not an area I would choose to devote a lot of time to, but a good day trip from other more touristy areas. The church was the highlight for me.

Area Archeologica di Santa Cristina

Reviewed By Linda S - Metchosin, Canada

The 5E per person admission includes the 3 sites here (sacred well, nuraghe village, christian church + village) as well as the Etnografico museum in Pauillatino. The sacred well is very unexpected and found inside keyhole shaped walls inside almond shaped walls. The well is made of almost perfect cut stone while the walls are made of rough stone - quite the contrast. The nuraghe village is nice in a pretty shady setting highlighted by one tower structure and two interesting barn structures. We just walked past the Christian church and village - pretty but the church wasn't open and is relatively new construction anyway.
The Etnografico museum in Pauillatino is housed in an interesting 'palace' type building but unfortunately was closed from 1-3pm when we got there in early November.

The boat itself was great, very large, with two cabins below, and very comfortable up top. The trip itself was a great mix of interesting sights, swimming, and visiting beautiful Beaches. And the crew itself was excellent, very informative interesting, and nice. Overall, an excellent day, well worth the price if you have the opportunity to do this. Highly recommended.

This Paleochristian era church is so old! It feels like the stones carry centuries of spiritual energy with its simple interior, cool and damp atmosphere. A quick stop and free.

Spiaggia tra San Giovanni di Sinis e Is Aruttas

Reviewed By chocdikrab - Frankfurt, Germany

we came to spiaggia san giovanni di sinis in the morning time around 10 a.m. and we were lucky to find a parking place, because the historic city tharros is in the surrounding directly. a one day ticket for parking costs 6 euro.
the spiaggia of san giovanni di sinis consists of two beach sections. one beach section is located southly from the historical tower, the second one is located northly of the tower. we choosed the beach section northly the tower.
the beach itself is fine sandy big rocks interupt the beach and the surface of the water, which presents every shade of green and blue. the water gets deep quickly and so the beach is not recommented for families with small children. how high are the waves depends on the strongness of the wind. we had a lot of fun during swimming and splashing. at the southend of the beach it is possible to snorkel also, cliffs and big rocks are located there, but the waves were too high and so we didn´t went out for snorkeling. shadowzones are rare and an umbrella and sun protection is absolutely necessary. further a cooling bag with drinks and food should be by side.
directly in the back of the beach a middlehigh steepcoast was formed by the nature, the vegetation consists of low maccia and sand lillies. behind the steepcoast there is the Promenade which leads the visitors to the entrance of tharros.
the southsection of san giovanni di sinis is only reachable per feet, because the visitor has to pass thrugh the archeological area of tharros. the south section has the same characteristics like the north section. fine sandy beach interupt with rocks and big stones. maybe a little bit higher waves, because we saw surfers riding the waves.
in the backland of the northsection there are located beachbars, about the prices we cannot give any information. a public toilette we found also.
we can recomment san giovanni di sinis very much. we had a perfect day there and enjoyed our time very much. the beach was without question a highlight during our stay in the province of Oristano. a place every visitor shouldn´t miss.

Spiaggia di Is Arutas

Reviewed By WilcoVeerdonk - Veghel, The Netherlands

Yes, it is something special; a beach full of quartz "grain". But the nice rosa colouring we did not observe. Without this you get a relatively small beach that steeply declines in the sea, so not very accessible for young kids. There is one beach bar, but this is probably one of the dirtiest I have seen in my life.

Museo Civico Giovanni Marongiu

Reviewed By Linda S - Metchosin, Canada

8 Euro for a combined Tharros and this Museum ticket. Can also add in a visit to the old Spanish Tower for a reduced price triple ticket. The museum is located right in the town of Cabras. It's a good museum with well set up showcases of local antiquities. Unfortunately only about 20% of the information boards are in a language other than Italian so that was a bit disappointing. The few English boards were well laid out and informative. Allow 30 minutes unless you can read Italian.

Chiesa di San Salvatore

Reviewed By BroLucius - Winchester, England

This small church, unimpressive from the outside, has a pretty interior. You can descend down several steps into the crypt area (about 5 separate rooms) which contains some graffiti dating back to the 4th century. In those days water was worshipped and this part of Sardinia contains several locations where there are ancient wells on display. No flash photography is permitted in the crypt.
